A few day’s ago, I asked the lighthearted question, “Who’s Catholic Twitter’s Justin Bieber?” I actually meant the question seriously, and you actually treated it seriously by offering great suggestions of our own realm of social media influencers who have the capacity to “get stuff done” with 140 characters or less in a well timed tweet.
Well today it’s time to have some fun. With the help of my good buddy Ashley Collins, I now present a lighthearted look at some of the candidates for the title of “Catholic Twitter’s Justin Bieber”. Please note — in case it’s not obvious — that Ashley and I have taken some creative license with the hairstyles of our nominees. I think the majority of them would take this in the spirit it’s intended, but since none of them have been consulted or offered formal approval to have their hairstyles “Bieberized”, I’ve already booked an appointment for my next Confession.
So now, without further ado… Catholic Twitter’s Justin Biebers:
